A native of Bidwell Ohio, Philip Keith Armstrong’s musical interest began as a young child singing the
National Anthem, a capella, at all the home football & basketball games at area high schools & colleges. He was awarded two full-time Presidential Scholarships to Shenandoah College & Conservatory of Music in VA and Central State University in Wilberforce, OH. Mr. Armstrong earned a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from the University of Akron. As a soloist he has traveled extensively in the U.S. as a member of the widely acclaimed Central State University Singers, recording with the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra, Amen: A Gospel Celebration with Jennifer Holiday, Maureen McGovern, Lou Rawls, and Gershwin: Selections from Porgy and Bess featuring Cab Calloway. Both records were nominated for Grammy awards.
Since 1997 Philip has performed for various major events, concerts, and organizations throughout Oklahoma, where he lives, and regionally. He was a selected vocalist and chorus member with The Tulsa Opera for the 2011 season in the performance of The Barber of Seville. During the summer of 2011 he was a featured soloist with a dynamic group of Tenors from across North America called The Mighty Sound of SEVEN.
Phil and wife Monique reside in Tulsa, Oklahoma with their blended blessing of four beautiful children, Raven, Raielle, Philip II, and Charlton.
